Mike Alstott to Retire?

The St Petersburg Times is reporting that Mike Alstott is going to announce his retirement. He has been absent from training camp the past 3 days. I thought he would announce it at the end of last season....but it never came. I hate to see him go, he's one of the good guys, has been an asset to the Buc's. But, when it's time, it's time..these guys take a beating and they know when their bodies are done. He's had some surgeries and isn't the heavy hitter he once was. He has ownership in some local restaurants, and a couple of young let him enjoy his family. I have followed him since his college days at Purdue, and knew a guy who's son played ball with him there, so I have an autographed photo of him on the wall in my den, from his rookie year so he's in the creamsicle orange Bucco Bruce uniform! Classic.
